Amazing Elkhart Race highlights the city and raises money for a good cause

Posted:

People were racing around Elkhart Saturday trying to win $1,000.  It was the Church Community Services Amazing Elkhart Race.  19 teams started in Downtown Elkhart then took off from there to compete in physical and mental challenges across the city.

Organizers said the event is meant to highlight what is Amazing about Elkhart and raise money for Church Community Services.  "We are dealing with people who are in need and we always need funds in order to do it," said Rod Roberson, the Executive Director of Church Community Services.

The event raised over $17,000 for Church Community Services.  That will go towards their programs that include a food bank and sending food home to seniors.
